At the start of the year, I thought about my wardrobe and style a whole lot and stayed guided by the book that I received for Christmas last year (The Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees). It really broadened my perspective as I was getting bored with my wardrobe and desperately wanted to change things up. It was also a journey I wanted to take. While I’ve kinda decided on a style, (injecting more pastel/single coloured garments into my closet), it is evolving and I’m excited to see what that brings.
Sometime ago, someone in my local sewing community held a Rinata thread spool spree. It was a bargain I couldn’t pass. And that was the backstory of how I added approximately 100 thread spools to my already bursting collection of thread. Now, I basically have them in all colours and shades. Talk about bringing this sewing hobby to a whole new level!
Handmade garments and delicate intimates should be given more care during the laundry process. Unfortunately, I learnt it the hard way after destroying the hems and seams of my handmade dress (the thread were all coming loose – horror!) and the hard-wire on my lingerie. That is extremely sad especially after all the effort that went into a handmade piece. So I’ve decided to be more conscious in caring for my handmade garments.
And here are 4 of my tips.
Inspired by Allie, I’ve also decided that I should give my self-drafted makes more love by giving them more presence through naming them. I’m guilty of downplaying self-drafted patterns, by no means are they easier to make than commercial patterns. In-fact they require even more effort!

Those of you who have followed me for awhile would know that recently I’ve been giving a lot of thought into curating a sustainable and intentional wardrobe. I want to fill my wardrobe with pieces that not only suits my current lifestyle but one that can also keep me inspired.
Happy Monday! This will be the first of many post regarding Seoul as I’ll be putting up some posts regarding places to go and things to look out for especially when travelling with a toddler. I started the Around the World fabric series for a while now to document all these fabric places I’ve been to whenever I travel. Part of the fun is researching these places and eventually making it there and immersing myself in what the place has to offer and its culture.
Just this week I posted on Instagram (@adesays) about how weekends for me is all about exploring the outdoors and running about and that short is now my go to outfit for the weekends. What then work great with shorts would be some neat nice tank/blouse which I really have a lack for.
